As usual, an abbreviated gameday preview for a semi-back-to-back game. Since the Stars last saw the Chicago Wolves, both have played one game. Chicago shutout the IceHogs 3-0 in Rockford, and Texas squeaked by the Griffins 5-4 in a shootout.

Both teams have played a 3-in-3 this weekend, so they are on even turf there. However, Chicago was able to finish off their opponent in regulation on Saturday which may put the Stars top lines at a disadvantage for having to play the extra five minutes.

If the Stars can come out strong on the puck, shooting in on the Chicago tender, then Texas has a very real chance of sweeping this weekend's games. Today's game with Chicago is the last of the regular season. Texas is 3-3-1-0 against the Wolves on the year and would certainly like to get another statement win on this big roadtrip.
